Roddick in form of his life: shock winner of USO 06

MY tip....this year is A=RODS year...he's only 24 years old, best opportunity for him to win it again

Of course his chances will be elevated if Fed gets knocked out. But i think he can beat Fed if he keeps his serving level up throughout the entire tournament. A red hot andy in 2003 form after all has beaten Fedz.

And yes the #3 debate ! A-ROD is the REAL no. 3!! look no further!

Andy looks really determined and hungry out there. Out of all the players he wants it the most.

Well at least he's not in Fed's half of the draw. I think this year is a real chance for him Go Andy!!!!!!!!

Re: Roddick in form of his life: shock winner of USO 06

Why would it be a shock ? He won the most recent Masters tournament. He's the in form player righ now so I would not be surprised if he goes on to lift the trophy.

Not sure a 3rd favourite is a shock winner.

Andy Roddick has potentially the nasty semi-final; the one against Nadal. Federer potentially will have an easier semi-final. Could be wrong, but based on current facts I would say his is the more difficult semi-final.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: Roddick in form of his life: shock winner of USO 06

I'd love to see Andy win the USO
and why shouldnt he have the confidence to do it - he won the last Masters event before the tourney so he can carry his game across and do really well in NY

Re: Roddick in form of his life: shock winner of USO 06

It depends on Roger's form, I don't see him losing if he can get as far as the final. If Andy can at least make it to the final I'll be happy.

Rooting for: Roddick | Federer | Blake| Fish | Bryans | Gasquet | Querrey | Baghdatis | Verdasco | Kimmy
Missing: Andre | Safin | Women's tennis

Re: Roddick in form of his life: shock winner of USO 06

can't see him getting past nadal or federer, they would return his serve too well, outplay him the rest of the point.

it wouldn't be a shock if he won as he is 3rd fave and on the back of a TMS win, but with fed and nadal always expected to win as such strong favourites, it would be a minor shock if he won, let's face it he played either right now he'd be a big underdog

Re: Roddick in form of his life: shock winner of USO 06

No shock there. He doesn't have an easy draw if the draw remains to form (or even if it doesn't remain to form but an energized Andre appears in R4), but he is one of the form players this HC season.
I would really like to see a Nadal-roddick SF, I think it's a lifetime ago in tennis terms to extrapolate from their previous meeting.

Federer does, but I'm not so sure about Nadal. He can be bullied around with a big serve, but he has improved in his ability to get back bigger serves.

Andy mowed down Nadal in 2003, nadal can't return big serves
